A food bank in Kendal has faced its 'busiest' ever months and is still in need of your help.

King's Food Bank, which can be found at the Shakespeare Centre on Highgate, dealt with 569 referrals in the first three months of 2024.

This resulted in 16,700 meals being provided to local residents in need as the impacts of the Cost of Living Crisis continue to cause problems.
